So anyway, all this to say that rather than allow my blog to languish here any further, I will post a couple of pictures for projects that don't require much explanation, since I've done similar projects before. Both of these are super quick to make!
First up: A sundress for our friend Baby Emma's first birthday. This is my new favorite kind of sundress to make. I actually have another one half-done for Little Sister as well. I did a yellow and gray one of these here--the basic idea is this: Take an old tank top (I suppose you could use a t-shirt as well, but something about the proportion of it looks better as a tank dress to me), cut off a few inches at the bottom, cut out a rectangle of fabric the width of the bolt, sew it into a tube, hem, and gather, then attach the two together. So simple and cute! On this one I added an apple applique to cover a glittery butterfly that was on the original tank.
Next, a pair of fabric flip-flops for Little Sister. This girl loves flip flops, so I ordered her a pair for cheap. I wasn't even planning on altering them, but the rubber straps were too tight, so I cut them up and made Little Sister a pair just like mommy's (click here for more info on how to do it!). Except that I reattached the elastic backstrap that came on the original rubber flip flops. Perfect!
|Oops, hard to see the backstrap there.|
|There they are.|
There. Now I feel better. And maybe more inspired to get to posting some of my other stuff!
